Chris Lawson leaves Absolute
Brand Director Chris Lawson is leaving his role at Absolute Radio after being with the company for eighteen months.
His position was created to ease the transition from radio station to digital entertainment company when it changed from Virgin Radio over a year ago.
Chris, who joined Absolute from Bauer Radio, held responsibility for all digital, marketing and communication activity. The marketing and communication responsibilities for the company will be undertaken by Head of Marketing Clare Baker and Head of Communications Cat Macdonald.
The digital responsibilities will be overseen by Clive Dickens, Chief Operating Officer, Anthony Abbott, Digital Media Editor and Duncan Amey, Lead Designer and Developer.
Absolute's digital projects in the last 12 months have included the launch of a new 80s music station, Absolute 80s and a new interactive digital station, Dabbl. It also launched comparative music website, comparemyradio.com.
Lawson said: “I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved with the brand in such a short space of time and I say goodbye to Absolute Radio as they take the brand on the next phase of it’s journey. I look forward to talking about my next digital adventure in the New Year.”
